Camping at the expo area at Susquehannock Campground is primitive and sometimes crowded—others call it cozy. There is very limited parking so be prepared to unload and then move your vehicle to a remote parking space.
There are no showers, electric hook-ups, RV’s, internet hot-spots, trailers of any sorts, bad attitudes etc., etc. There are trees with roots, hilly slopes, the occasional rock, great views, lots of friendly riders, vault toilets, hand pump water, some lake access sites.
RV Sites are located in Ridge Campground off of Seven Points Road. This is approximately three miles away from the expo. You can ride on trails the entire way to the campsite. That’s right…. we added a trail. Ridge Camp and Meadow Camp are generally the ones riders gravitate towards as they are closest to the trails. If this sounds like what you are looking for you must purchase a day pass to Dirt Fest and register your campground independently through the Army Corp of Engineers.
Group camping: Camp at the event with your friends and fellow riders in groups of seven or more. A good rule of thumb is your will have room for one vehicle on site for every four people. The larger your group, the more primo your space. Come up with your own group name, shop name, or club name (please spell it out though, no acronyms. (“Chicago Area Mountain Bike Association” instead of “CAMBA”.)
Individual camping: Groups of less than seven people should register as individuals. You will be placed in a size-appropriate campsite. You will be able to unload your vehicle, but you will not be able to keep it at your campsite, sorry. There is a fire ring for each site, please build fires ONLY there.
